I really, sincerely love What's Become of the Baby, but only on the original mix of Aoxomoxoa--an LP transcription of which has been torrented at a number of sites over the past year. I think it's a brilliant, emotionally intense piece of musique concrete, and Jerry (or Phil, or whomever you think did the Aoxomoxoa remix) was out of his head when he destroyed it in the remix.

I also wish they had played Death Don't Have No Mercy and It's All Over Now Baby Blue way more than they did.

Does Lazy Lightning > Supplication qualify? I have no use for the lyrics and hot-shit singing, but I adore the drippy 7/4 jamming.

I don't know what people think about Big River, but the guitar work and interlocking rhythms make it way more than just another upbeat tune in my book.

Lou,

Don't be afraid to dive into the 1980's for your songs.

The Warlock's Death Don't was excellent:

A very nice Baby Blue from:

and Brent does some good work on the Big River from:

Not quite the 68 and 69 sound I prefer, but it's great music.

As for What's Become .... I will take a listen tonight.

I feel the second night of the warlocks hampton show was a tad overrated, but not that Death Don't. Goose Bump city on that baby.

If Lazy Lightning>Supplication gets slammed, then I have to add it to the list that I used to start this thread. Never, ever saw a weak version of that. Weir's attack on the vocals fit the lyrics like a glove---Lazy Lightning, they say you'll never strike the same place/I want a double dose in my case!
Love it. One of my all-time favorites.

Shame the Dead eliminated that Supplication-extension, when was that?

Naturally Cliff prefers the jammed-out Kingfish versions from the mid-seventies. Wier and Hoddinot could really work that out...

Hoddinot on Battle of New Orleans from 76 is simply amazing...
